I call it "procrastination".

Modern art: I call it Procrastination.

I started a new painting this week but it took me hours to finally make the first brushstrokes on the canvas.  What is it about a blank canvas that makes it so hard to start a new painting?  Instead, I procrastinated by updating my email list, entering some exhibition competitions, updating my website and online galleries, plus spending hours viewing other artist’s blogs and Pinterest accounts.  I finally bit the bullet and made my very first strokes of juicy paint on the wet panel letting the paint run down freely.  Stay tuned for more.

This cold weather has me dreaming of Florida

Many of you are experiencing the same cold snap as I am in New York City (expected low of 3 degrees F tonight).  It has me dreaming of warmer weather.  Wouldn’t it be nice to “play hooky” and skip out to Florida for an extended weekend?  That’s what I had in mind while creating this new painting.  The title is a play on words (some fish trying to sneak out of “school” for the day).


“Playing Hooky”, Mixed Media, 20″x 20″ on canvas.
